actually,ive got a couple of carbs i could use,so its only going to cost me a $20 adapter. ill probably go to a weber or a small 4bbl,if i can find a manifold,but not for this engine.over the winter im going to build a stroker,and ill need the manifold to fit the 4.0 head. does the offy manifold/weber come with auto shift linkage? or do i spend $300-$400 on a carb and intake and am left with the same problem?ive had webers on some german cars,and seen a few on samis,toyotas,and stuff,but ive never talked to someone who had one on a jeep.do you have this setup in your cj? how do you like it?ever had any trouble?
alot of the guys here run the motorcraft 2bbls on their 258s,and ive been impressed with how they run.ive also had alot of experience with the motorcraft from the old fords i used to play with before i got into 4 wheeling.unfortunately,just every one ive ever looked at has had a manual tranny.id been hlding out on the carb swap until i found a manual tranny,but im getting really tired of the carter.
im pretty set on keeping a six,i just want to make it alittle more reliable.
thanks for the input.
